Write a letter to your friend explaining why you could not attend the marriage of his brother.
January 10, 20….
My dear Ravinder,
I fear that you are annoyed with me. I could not attend your brother’s marriage. There was a reason behind it.
I was well set to leave for your residence to attend your brother’s wedding ceremony. As I was about to start my scooter, my mother had a fall, she broke her leg. My father was not at home. She had to be removed to the hospital. She needed twenty-four hour care.
I would have loved to be with you. But God willed otherwise. I hope you will no more be angry with me. Convey my congratulations to your parents. I shall come some day.
With best wishes,
